Installed some LED DRLs

I was a bit disgusted at how much the echomaster DRL's costed and how much the cheap china alternatives were too. So I went out and bought some stand alone ones and did this all for under $20.

I'll make a How to either on the weekend or sometime next week. Too busy to do it right now, and I only have half the pictures necessary to make it comprehensive as of now.

This is what they look like at night, I'll see if I can upload a day picture tomorrow too. (Yes... the parking. Lets not take notice yeah? I was picking a friend up at the supermarket at 11pm)

I await the how tos on this.

And yea, echomaster is a right ripoff considering what the parts on their own actually cost.

Is it just me or does the Euro headlights with the clear turn signals just look 10x better than ours with the big ugly yellow lenses?

I don't mean to steal your thunder, but a really thorough one has already been done.

I've had mine for over a year now, and spent about $30 total.

I bought them here...

Perfect, thats an awesome 'How to' as well. There should really be a sticky with all the how to's, make things easy to find.
